Also: No. I did not paint every single little fucking scale by hand. I cheated and used a custom brush. All I have to do is shade every single little fucking scale by hand.
Also-Also: I am exparimenting with hand-binding books. I have realized that when it comes time to do omnibuses (omnibi?) of my little books I would be best off hiring an editor. Which will be expensive as fuck. So when it comes time to do Lightning Source print books, I will *probably* do a Kickstarter and/or Indie a go go campaign to pay for the set up and the editor.
What would you guys think about hand bound, hardcover, illustrated copies of Starbleached, that first little book, as one of the donation rewards? Same would go for Exiles when it comes time for that omnibus. Discuss in comments.
(PS Self Publishing Thursdays will continue when I am not killing myself to try to get this thing done by the second. If you have something specific you want me to cover re: Self publishing things, please comment and lemme know.)
